Course Description

This course's goal is both to broaden and to deepen the students' understanding of criminal law. We will study in depth matter not addressed-or covered only briefly-in the first year. Topics may include crimes (such as theft offenses, rape, attempt, complicity, and conspiracy), defenses (such as self-defense, necessity, duress, diminished capacity and mental illness) and both constitutional and prudential limitations on criminalization and punishment.
